Lynne and the Pickle

One month becomes Six

The team at a firm of attorneys and conveyancers in Centurion was in a pickle. They work on massive deals (massive meaning transactions worth R2.5 billion) and can’t afford a wasted business hour. As all business owners know: Time is money.

Anyway, the pickle was that it was nearing October – final exam time – and two of the team members had to take study leave. Then a third was unexpectadly hospitalised and the rest of the team was under too much pressure to cope on their own. The firm contacted AdminAssist to request for  a professional, intelligent and experienced assistant to come support the team. Suffice it to say the match we made was so good that our assistant, Lynne, is still there six months later!

Lynne was thrown in the deep end. She learnt about the team’s procedures and preferences at lighting speed and focussed on those activities that aided them best. This meant that they could focus on the specialised activities they are qualified for. A win-win situation. The team asked her to stay on, enabling them to submit all their transactions to the deeds office before the office closed middle December. A job really well done.

As I said earlier, Lynne is still there six months later. She’s now become part of the team.
